What medicine require for reducing large adenoid. Without operation of large adenoid any risk. Please suggest how it will be curable.

BDS, Non-Resident J.R. in Dept. of Orthodontics, Certified oral implantologist, Advanced Aesthetics, Digital Smile Designer
Dentist, Jammu
Surgical removal of the adenoids is a procedure called adenoidectomy. Carried out through the mouth under a general anaesthetic, adenoidectomy involves the adenoids being curetted, cauterised, lasered, or otherwise ablated. Adenoidectomy is most often performed because of nasal obstruction, but is also performed to reduce middle ear infections and fluid (otitis media). The procedure is often carried out at the same time as a tonsillectomy, since the adenoids can be clearly seen and assessed by the surgeon at that time. Adenoidectomy is also performed on patients who have chronic ear infections caused by the adenoids blocking the eustachian tube.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

A cup of tea a day, keeps the dentist away! A single cup of tea contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth thereby keeping the teeth and gums healthy.

My upper and lower front teeth overlap excessively. Space available for upper and lower teeth is not sufficient. What does it mean? And how to fix it.

BDS
Dentist,
Hi, from what you have mentioned above, it seems that you have got overbite problem in which the upper teeth totally covers the lower teeth when you bite and it can be corrected by orthodontic treatment. Its advisable to consult your dentist and get the best suited treatment planned out.

Certified Implantologist
Dentist, Kolkata
Clean your tongue with a tongue scraper every morning to remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath. A major cause of bad breath is the build-up of bacteria on the tongue, which a daily tongue scraping will help to banish. Using a tongue scraper is more effective than brushing your tongue with a toothbrush.

I am 28 years male. I am Suffering from dental pain at left upper m1 and m2. The dentist took the xray and explained as m2 is completely infected and m1 is infected but in the outermost layer of enamel.

According to the details you gave, you may go for the root canal treatment in m2 if the tooth can be saved, and if it can not be saved get the teeth removed. Dentist may give you more information on that seeing the xray if you can put it. And in m1, go for cavity filling it can easily be saved.

Lybrate-user visit a dentist, get xrays done to check for any fracture. If there is no fracture then regular antiinflammatory would help you.

Hello lybrate-user. Gum bleeding involves various underlying factors like calculus, vitamin deficiency, poor oral hygiene. Go for professional cleaning of your teeth once in every 6 months and see a dentist and get the needful.
